Accompanied by the video, Gomez wrote a heartfelt caption, acknowledging her own vulnerability. She further expressed her journey of self-discovery by adding, “Making of… me getting to know myself.”

In the video, Gomez is wearing a light gray sweater with her hair pulled back into a bun. As the clip progresses, she becomes visibly emotional, pausing her singing and piano-playing. She pouts, exhales, and utters a hesitant “Um” before the video concludes. The genuine display of emotion resonates with fans, highlighting the depth of the song’s personal meaning to Gomez.

In another TikTok shared by Gomez, she can be seen singing “Lose You to Love Me” to a seemingly disinterested child lying face down on the floor of a rehearsal studio. She humorously captioned the video, “Best audience,” adding a touch of lightheartedness to the emotional process of creating music.

The release of “Lose You to Love Me” in 2019 was a significant moment for Gomez. During an interview on On Air with Ryan Seacrest in October 2019, she revealed that she experienced a “sense of relief” upon releasing the track. She explained that she wrote the song over a year prior and had undergone significant personal growth since then. The song became even more meaningful to her because of the transformative journey she had been on since its creation.


This isnt the greatest i know so i hope no one minds me turning the comments off for my head but this was the best, most sincere moments with lose you to love me

Her Past Relationship With Justin Bieber May Have Played a Role In The Song

Gomez shared that if she had written the song during the time of her initial experiences, she “absolutely not” would have released it. It took her a considerable amount of time to heal from her wounds and reach a place of strength. She expressed that now, she is able to look back and smile, knowing that the song encapsulates the growth she has achieved.

“This song was inspired by many things that have happened in my life since releasing my last album.” Gomez said. “I thought it was important to share the music, as I know many can relate to the fact that the road to self-discovery generally comes through the scars in one’s life.”

In the lyrics of “Lose You to Love Me,” Gomez subtly alludes to her on-and-off relationship with ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber. Lines such as “Set fire to my purpose and I let it burn” seem to reference Bieber’s 2015 album, “Purpose.” Another verse states, “In two months you replaced us like it was easy,” reflecting the rapid public transition from their relationship to Bieber’s subsequent engagement and marriage to Hailey Bieber.
